Green curry with cauliflower rice

Currys are such lovely things. Warm, flavoursome and so fulfilling. And the best currys are the ones you make from scratch, which is quite a simple task. You might wonder what cauliflower rice is. Well, it is not rice with cauliflower; it’s cauliflower blended into crumbs as a substitute for rice  (tip from the husband). This makes the dish low on carbs as well as being vegan. This recipe makes a large pan of curry and can easily be refrigerated for a later time. I like my currys spicy; this one is quite mild, so if you want more heat: use more chili!!! Let’s get cookin’!
